“When I heard about Mars One, it was hard for me to believe a private company could pull off such an ambitious worldwide project. After several discussions with the directors and some of the advisers, I realize that this can really be done when multidisciplinary top scientists and professionals work together to achieve one of the most exciting human dreams. As a Latin American I wish to contribute to this project not just because it is one of my greatest dreams ever, but also because I believe human beings have to continue to expand their social, cultural and spiritual frontiers far beyond our planet to make a better world today… and in the future!”
